Cabin Crew Careers
It may be hard to believe, but being a member of cabin crew you have a lot of responsibilities besides turning up with a can-do attitude and looking the part. When you are a passenger, it’s easy to think that they don’t do much more than provide you with food and drink.
So what are the main duties of a cabin crew member?
Well these can vary whether you are on a short haul or long haul flight, but generally they include:
All cabin crew members attend a pre-flight briefing in which they are notified of any special requirement passengers may have (allergies, disabilities, frequent flyers, VIP passengers etc)
Pre-flight duties including checking safety equipment, assuring the aircraft is clean and tidy, first aid equipment is checked etc.
Welcoming passengers/directing them to seats, assisting with luggage.
Establishing aircraft safety procedures
Making any necessary announcements etc informing passengers of any delays
Selling food/drinks/duty free
Making sure passengers disembark safely and checking for items that may be left behind by passengers
Complete paperwork e.g logging faults or problems on flight, communicating with ground staff and documenting stock control.
One of the most important aspects of cabin crew jobs is having the confidence to cope with any emergency or security issues which could arise.
Overall cabin crew members must display exceptional customer service and create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere at all times. Does this sound like something you could do? If so, why not upload your CV or take one of our cabin crew courses?
